It’s my pleasure to share with you the complete playlist of the Virtual Fantasy Con’s 2017 panel discussions.

I’d like to thank all of the amazing authors whom I had the pleasure of speaking with! If you have an interest in fantasy fiction, I think these are well worth the watch.

The last of the three panels I had the honour of hosting for the Virtual Fantasy Con this year! In this one we discuss fantasy mashups. What happens when you blend fantasy with another genre? What are the benefits and the drawbacks? And at what point does a blend become a genre of its own? We have a panel full of fantasy mashup authors, and this was a lot of fun!
You can watch the entire playlist of the Virtual Fantasy Con panels HERE.

This is the second of three panels I had the privilege of hosting for the Virtual Fantasy Con 2017, and this one just might be my favourite.
